CFL Bulb Calculator
If every American home replaced one 100W incandescent light bulb with a 23W CFL, we would save 69 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. That's the equivalent of taking 1.1 million cars off the road or planting 47 million trees!
ENERGY STAR® qualified CFLs use about 75% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer. By installing CFLs in fixtures that are used the most in your home, such as your kitchen, living room or dining room, you can save approximately $30 or more over the lifetime of each bulb.
